Sodium lactate is used in cold process soap to harden the soap. Use 1/2 oz. to 1 oz. sodium lactate per pound of soap oils.  One gallon is approximately 11 pounds but is sold by volume.

Sodium lactate is water soluble.

Packaged in an opaque, white HDPE plastic bottle to reduce exposure to sunlight. Store in an air tight container in a cool, dark place.

I used sodium lactate for the first time recently. I was trying to add as few ingredients to my soaps as possible but now I will never make soap again without it. I'm a little impatient (okay, a lot) and have a bustling soap business. Sodium lactate hardens the soap bars enough to take them out of the mold in exactly 24 (okay, maybe 22) hours with no soap left on the mold at all. I'm sold.
